Reading Days have been cut to make up for the canceled classes due to snow this semester, Provost Vincent Price said in a statement in Penn News Today.
Instead of being able to catch up on Game of Thrones, students will now have to attend classes on May 1 and 2. However, because the number of class days lost outnumber the number of reading days, students will have to attend two days worth of class each day. For some students, this might mean over 24 hours of class per day.
“This is literally impossible,” Eduardo Kim, a dual dual-degree student in M&T and Huntsman, said. “Even if I skip recitation I’ll still have to break the time barrier to get to all my classes.”
Price also warned that if the rainy weather continues, the University may cancel class due to flooding. “And you know what that means,” Price said.
